The Chaser, 50 Golden Years of the Chaser: 1955-2005 (Text Publishing, 2006).
A rehash of articles from their fortnightly satirical newspaper, 50 Golden Years of the Chaser is the latest offering to hit bookstores from The Chaser team, makers of The Chaser s War on Everything and CNNNN. With highlights including,'Word Trade Centre Janitor Declares: Best Sickie Ever' and 'Bali Trial Mix-up: Vanessa Amorosi Executed', this collection brings together all those headlines setting The Chaser's contribution to Australian current affairs apart from the rest. Following on from the Chaser Annuals--described as being 'the biggest load of puerile rubbish you will read all year'--this retrospective promises to be the half-century's biggest load yet.
